My Houzz: ‘Empire’ Star Taraji P. Henson Renovates Stepmum's Home
One thing that guides actress Taraji P. Henson through life is something her late father used to say to her: “If you have been blessed, then it is your duty to go out into the world and be a blessing.”
The Golden Globe-winning actress known for her roles in the TV series Empire and the movie Hidden Figures recently put her father’s advice to good use. She surprised her stepmom, Angela Henson, by renovating Angela’s kitchen, dining room and living room to create a more open floor plan with a new, better-functioning kitchen. “I feel like I’m doing what my dad told me to do,” Taraji says.
